Vincent Deporter (13 February 1959 – 27 September 2022) was a Belgian comic and storyboard artist. Deporter got his start in comics working as an assistant to Jean Graton, before selling his own strips, as Mike Deporter, to Spirou magazine. From 1996, after relocating to New York, he worked on DC's line of comic books adapted from popular animated cartoons, like Scooby-Doo and Ed, Edd n Eddy, and also inked many of the Batman, and Superman style-guides. He continued to work for Nickelodeon, notably on SpongeBob SquarePants. When Nickelodeon Magazine ended its print run, he then started to write and draw for the SpongeBob Comics as a regular contributor. Deporter also wrote and illustrated on more philosophical issues. He illustrated the book Sacred Cows: a Lighthearted Look at Belief and Tradition around the World, by the host of The Thinking Atheist Seth Andrews. He lived in Arizona, painting and writing non-graphic novels.
